Pencil and Coloured pencils on Paper
55 x 74 cm
I was inspired to make this artwork by my love for reading books. I have always felt as if I enter a new world whenever I read one. Hence the title – Books Alive. The artwork is done with graphite, colour pencils and pages from books. In comparison to the black and white surroundings, the coloured letters popping out of the books show how books add colour to my life. I chose to depict myself at my study table at home as that is where I usually read my books and feel the magic happen.
